Description

Background

The new anti adblock notification is confusing to some users and they don't know what it is about.

See https://adblockplus.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=94172#p941722

Complaint via e-mail:

Nun bekomme ich heute eine absolut nervige Anzeige, die fragt: "Zielgerichtete Nachrichten ausblenden? Diese seite hat in der Vergangenheit Adblock Plus Nutzern gezielt Nachrichten angezeigt. Soll Adblock Plus Nachrichten dieser Art verstecken?" Stamm das von Ihnen? Wenn ja, wie kommt es , dass Sie einem nicht erklären, welche Folgen das hat, wenn man Ja oder Nein klickt? Was passiert, wenn man das ignoriert?

What to change

Adding a "More Information" link to the message that points to a page which explains what it is about or just adding a tooltip.

On Firefox this is no problem but on Chrome (incl. Opera and Safari) we're already struggling with implementing it due to the lack of features provided by the browsers. Anyway, what we could do on there is at least show the URL… not sure how helpful that'd be but it seems like the only option we'd have.

@sven: could you suggest a better text and/or do you agree with greiners suggestion to add a more info URL, even if not linked?

  • Platform set to Unknown
  • Priority changed from P3 to P4

Reducing priority to P4 since it appears to be a minor issue for which there's no easy solution yet.

  • Resolution set to rejected
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing this ticket because there were no further reports as far as I'm aware of and due to the issues we're having with finding a good solution. We can reopen it again if it turns out to be an actual problem but as of right now this does not appear to be the case.

If still of interest, we could try to synch Lisa with Kai for that.
